Sen. Booker Stunned by Kavanaugh Answer on Yale Black Law Students Association

Senator Booker Stunned by Kavanaugh Answer on Yale Black Law Students Association
Kavanaugh also detailed his efforts to hire diverse law clerks. “My law clerks come from diverse backgrounds and points of view,” he said. *********“I started — on my own — going to the Yale Black Law Students Association every year starting in 2012. I think I’m the only judge who has done something like that, or certainly one of the few.”***********

“It was important to him that everyone have access,” Rakim Brooks, a former Kavanaugh clerk, told The Post. Brooks had attended a 2014 Yale meeting the nominee held with African-American students, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Kavanaugh and his supporters argue that this commitment to diversity extends back through his time at the White House, when former President George W. Bush wanted to prioritize ushering in a more diverse roster of candidates as nominees for the federal bench.

Meanwhile, as The WSJ has pointed out, Kavanaugh’s history on court cases related to issues of racial inequality is … complicated. The WSJ especially calls out the awkward contrast between Kavanaugh’s work promoting diversity among the White House’s judicial nominees, while also bolstering the administration’s argument against race-conscious college admissions. Kavanaugh has said he didn’t really see a “contradiction” between the two, noting, “Diversity is a permissible goal, but a state must use race-neutral criteria when available.”

The dissonance between these two positions is something that didn’t go unnoticed by lawmakers during the hearing this week.

“You’ve told me about the diversity you’ve promoted in law clerk hiring and I’m so grateful for it. ... I’m not asking you about the five black clerks you have,” said Sen. Cory Booker on Wednesday, as Kavanaugh deflected a question regarding his perspective on a program that helped advance minority businesses.
